The Plague Guard are a vast Daemon warband, composed of seven legions filled with the most elite warriors the Chaos God Nurgle commands. Only the most revolting, contagious and skilled accountants of ailment are selected and each of the seven legions within the warband, is led by a Great Unclean One. Overall, Ku'Gath is the General of the warband's forces and Septicus acts as his second in command.[1a]
The Plague Guard would take part in invading Ultramar, during the later years of the Plague Wars[1a] and claimed the world Iax for Nurgle[1b]. The Warband then invaded Parmenio, but were later defeated by Imperium forces led by Lord Commander Guilliman.
